I am not a big Simpsons fan. I mean it is ok but I seldom giggle out loud when watching it.
My husband on the other hand is a huge fan. He alternates alter egos between Homer and Bart. He's a little bit of both.
And much to much shock and horror both of my children love it.
We have had many adult conversations about the age inappropriateness of the Itchy and Scratchy show not to mention the slacker values (which may be why it is so near and dear to my husband).
Abigail loves Dora The Explorer but she gets bored. Who wouldn't?
Sebastian loves Power Rangers but I find it makes him a bit hyper active. Who wouldn't?
But for a 30 minutes every evening Marc sits down with Sebastian and Abigail nestled in the crooks of his arms to watch the entire program. I sit in the kitchen blogging away listening the belly laughter emanating from the living room. From all of them.
I don't get it. It doesn't matter. It's their quality time!
